Search in all or multiple accounts and not one by one

While I love everything else about Newton, search has often failed me.

It’s the one thing which has forced me to go back to Gmail from time to time to find that elusive email.

Totally agree. The search function is hopeless. I also end up going to the webmail for my various accounts when trying to track down elusive emails burried deep in the archive. This should be a real priority!

I agree. Searching for an email in Newton is a disaster. Total time waster. This should be priority number 1.

Huge agree. This is probably my main issue. I’ll search for an email I’ve received today and it won’t be in the original list. Once I pick the correct account it will find it. I don’t know what that’s the case, but it makes search quite a chore.

Agree. Search was the only thing that bothered me in Newton. It was sometimes slow or unhelpful (I couldn’t find some emals that I definitely had). In such cases I was forced to search in native clients (in gmail etc. depending on the account needed), but that was hard because I use several accounts and sometimes I don’t remember which account is associated with the email I’m searching for.

Couldn’t agree more. Newton is excellent, however I maintain Outlook purely for searches and filing into other accounts beyond what the e-mail was received in.

Definitely something we can work on. I wont promise immediate fixes though. Not for at least next two months. But I hear you guys loud and clear on this.

For me, searching multiple inboxes at the same time would be most important. I sometimes do not know to which account the email was sent.

@Glenn.bergmans Absolutely right ! Find to which account the email was sent is sometime a struggle

It has been a couple of years since I used Newton. I am glad you guys have taken it on. I seam to remember the search function being more robust than it is now. When I do a search it only goes back 1 to 2 weeks and then spins and times out. Beefing this up would be great. Thanks.

Under the old administration, Newton staff told me that was due to IMAP servers, and that IMAP would be specifically problematic. I often can’t find an e-mail a few weeks old, and would find e-mail that don’t seem to have anything to do with what I was looking for.
